Cadets and JCRs have always played an important role in remembering this battle at cenotaphs across Canada, and at Vimy Ridge.
In these unprecedented times we invite Cadets, JCRs, their families, staff, and volunteers to take part in a virtual moment of remembrance.
To participate in this important act of remembrance we ask that on April 9th, at 8PM, in your local time zone you:
- Wear your ceremonial dress uniform (C1 for Cadets and 1A for staff, green sweatshirts for JCRs) at home
- Light a candle or use a virtual candle
- Wear a poppy if you have one
- Observe two minutes of silence
- Take a selfie or image and tag @CadetsCa and Canada Remembers on either Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #RememberVimy
Although we are apart, we can come together and show our respect for this important battle that helped to shape our nation.
